Connection Type: People in SharePoint Group

With the People in SharePoint Group connection type you can display the information about the group members of your organization in SharePoint on the page.



  • You have a group(s) created in SharePoint. Check this article to know more on the SharePoint site permissions.

Step 1: Add a ShortPoint Design Element

You can choose and add any ShortPoint Design Element you want. ShortPoint Design Elements can be easily added to your pages using ShortPoint Page Builder.

  • Modern page:

You can start with adding a ShortPoint web part to your page by clicking the plus sign and selecting ShortPoint from the list of the web parts. 

  • Classic page:

1. Choose the Insert tab in the Ribbon.

2. Click the blue Insert button.

Then, select the chosen ShortPoint Design Element from your Page Builder menu. For the purposes of this article we are using ShortPoint Image Lists.

Step 2: Connect your Design Element to People in SharePoint Group

Switch to the Connect tab and select the People in SharePoint Group connection option.

From the drop-down of the Select Groups, choose the SharePoint Group you would like to get the data from.

Note: you may select one or multiple groups to be displayed. 

If you need to show the limited number of people, put the value to the Items Limit field. 

Note: By default, the Items Limit is set to 0 and shows all the members of the selected groups.

Click Connect and wait for the connection to load.

Now the People in SharePoint Group are connected. To complete the connection, we need to map the fields, as shown above.

Please proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Map the Items

Switch to the Items tab. 

Map the corresponding properties to display on your page. Click the chain icon and choose the option you would like to map from the drop-down. 

In our example we mapped the Title field with the PreferredName, Subtitle field with the WorkEmailDescription field with the Department content from the users' profiles and Image field with the PictureURL. 

Note: Check our ShortPoint Connect: Basic Tutorial for more information on how ShortPoint Connect works.

Step 4: Click Insert and save the page

You can click Preview button to check how it will be displayed on your page.

Then, click Insert and save the page. 

Note: If you are editing the element not for the first time, instead of Insert you will see the Update button.


Here is a sample web part that uses ShortPoint Connect People in SharePoint Group option:
